investment from the private sector. we have great resources common knowledge, and expertise in energy. in energy we have created 1 billion pounds for capture in storage, one of the key technologies of the future. we created the world's first green investment bank. we're pioneering a new incentive for heat systems in people's homes, and we are putting in place a robust financial framework to incentivize renewable electricity. as a result, more than 12 billion pounds has been committed to into renewable projects in the u.k. and the past 18 months alone with the potential to support around 20,000 new jobs. we've also created new incentives to squeeze more oil and gas out of the north sea, including from the marginal fields. when we see opportunity, we must go for it. look at the way we of got behind tech city right here in london. two years ago there were around 200 digital companies. today there are 1200. with major tech companies like amazon and facebook setting up developer centers, this is now becoming the fastest-growing technology cluster anywhere in the world. we will be publishin
-- testily need -- desperately need for clean energy that will protect the planet. host: how does it work as a tax and how is it calculated? guest: day carbon tax is populated on the carbon content of the fossil fuel. coal is going to be taxed the most. natural gas the least an oil somewhere in the middle. renewables would not be taxed at all because they have no carbon in them. anything that is made with fossil fuels is one to become more expensive. that may seem like a negative, it is actually a positive. we need that pricing to bring away from transition t fossil fuel and away from 30 energy. it will make the economy more efficient and the tax -- to bring about the transition away from fossil fuel and away from dirty energy. the talk in washington in the past few weeks has been about a carbon tax of $20 per ton of carbon dioxide. that is hard to translate. it would be maybe half a cent a kilowatts in electricity and 18 cents a gallon more in the price of gasoline. that will bring about $100 million more a year in revenue. you could reform the tax code to make it more fair, more efficie
and constantly harness some of the energy around ideas and help the individuals that will be part of the party going forward. i think he'll trying to help them too. >> you were in the president with iowa an emotional place for him. give us a short picture of what it was like coming to an send in >> he's not a publically emotional guy. you're all the walk dead. it's both campaigns and every reporter but he looked out that night and saw all these faces of these people that believed in him and were with him in 2007 and i don't mean random faces but three or four people he actually recognized and knew and waived at him and waved back. that struck him and impacted him and he got emotional that night and was very reflective as it sounds like governor romney was as well. the morning of the election we were waiting to do the up teeth interview and he said his supporters believe in him as much as ours do and there's kind of this untold bond i guess i would say when you've been through this crazy journey that you have reflection for the other person, but yeah, he was pretty intro speckive. i think he di
charged three more people over the deep water horizon accident. this from environment and energy news. the justice department charged three workers involved in the deepwater horizon with various criminal violations. dd go down to amarillo, texas, merlin is waiting on the independent line. you're on the "washington journal." caller: i was just wondering how much b.p. has actually made cleaning up the spill? host: not a stat i have for you right now, merlin. i can tell you b.p. was reporting profits in the fourth quarter of 2010 after the spill occurred. profits of about $5.5 billion. the spill occurred in the summer of that year. this according to b.p.'s website. in the third quarter of 2010, b.p.'s profits were about $5 billion. in the fourth quarter of 2011, $7.6 billion in profits. caller: does anybody think that they might have did it on purpose? host: why would you think that, merlin? caller: well, because i heard that the night right before the spill they pulled out their stocks in a lot of, you know, some of the money that they had out there, they pulled out -- host: where are y
investment in energy policy not just energy politics. >> the senator was in florida for a birthday celebration and he talked on the presidential campaigns. if you missed his speech it's available at journal@cspan.org. other headlines from the chicago tribune. 25 years after the death of harold washington. are black chicagoans better off? this from the baltimore sun. something we're seeing a lot more of in major metropolitan areas. fast money. cameras are plentiful and profitable but are they accurate and reliable. baltimore sun. the richmond times focuses on the international story is expanding air strikes and hamas levelled in ga savment back to policy issues whether or not medicare and medicaid in social security should be all part of the discussion in terms of bringing down the nation's debt. bob. north carolina good morning. republican line. caller: good morning. i would like to point out whenever somebody you know suggests privatizeing the social security system. demonize this push and go people in wheelchairs over a cliff. and in fact, in galveston where they opted out they'r
our energy policy. we fix problems, we don't complain about them. everybody started coming around -- that's right, we need to start doing that. we had a one-pager about how to address the immigration problem. one page. we went to the floor of the convention, and i will tell you about the texas convention. the largest gathering of conservatives in the nation break 8000 delegates at this convention. we started walking onto the floor, and all of a sudden i see "no amnesty" stickers, and i thought we would have a nice little debate. wrong. little did i note that it was on. they called us every name in the book. we had religious conservatives testify for us. we had this the reputed dr. phil session -- therapeutic doctor full session in the subcommittee. five times they attacked our platform. specifically our one-pager. it opened a lot of people's eyes the conservatives really do understand this problem. i believe the vocal minority and has hijacked this issue and they got us all fighting and they have done that on purpose, to make of that nothing happens -- make sure nothing happens. w
energy sector. the american wind energy industry is in jeopardy. the production tax credit will end december 31, 2012. it must be extended or else 30,000 jobs will be lost and 450 manufacturing businesses will close. two additional measures must also be considered. first, we could apply the master limited partnership and the real estate investment tax programs to the green energy sector and thereby bring significant financing opportunities along with the production tax credit. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from tennessee, mrs. black, for five minutes. mrs. black: thank you, mr. speaker. while the president returned from the campaign trail last week with a slightly more conciliatory tone, his insistence on a year end tax hike on small businesses is unchanged, and frankly that is completely unacceptable. it is unacceptable for more than 23 million americans struggling for work right now. it's unacceptable for millions of middle-class americans struggling to support their families with rising gas prices an
is staying put. fred upton the chairman of the energy and commerce committee where a lot of health care and energy policy go through. the committee of jurisdiction there will be staying for another two years. and ways and -- any type of entitlement stuff. dave camp. he is not going anywhere either. where we are go to see significant committees where there will be turnover is the judiciary committee. he is term limited. he will make a bid for the science committee. he will find himself in competition. ralph hall, the chairman now is term limited. also the transportation and infrastructure committee. there are a few people who happen to have seniority but either have committee assignments or not looked upon as viable. we are passing the baton to a new generation. bill schuster is making a very strong play for the chairmanship of that. that will be just in time for congress to start to think about another reauthorization of the transportation programs, the highway bill, if you will. there is a short-term extension. they will need to revisit that in the 113th congress and representative sh
, the energy industry. all of which has constituencies behind them and are difficult to address. >> part of the president's answer to that is to not make the distinction between the corporate and the unincorporated business and raise taxes on what one of the speakers described as passed through entities. large partnerships. and that might have otherwise been corporations. >> i think there is no doubt that the corporate income tax in particular is a rickety structure in need of reform. coming about because we are in a world in which capital is increasingly mobile but we have this boundary around the corporate income tax in based on a national boundary and there is just tension contained in that phenomenon. there is dramatically different perspectives about where to move. the republican party seems much more interested in a territorial system where you get past on the profits that accrue in the united states. democrats are worried that creates even larger incentives for transfer pricing and for locating your profits overseas. and thereby escaping that tax. that is a fundamental divide. in
about opportunities in the areas of trade and energy and other global affairs that really should be taken advantage of by the united states moving forward. but we have to -- we emphasize as well there are three issues that were on an old agenda that had not been resolved and stood in the way of more productive relationship between the u.s. and latin america. these issues were drugs, cuba, and immigration. the first two issues were important at the summit of the americas. the report was released right before the summit of the americas. the first two issues were raised at the summit. the presidents get a mandate to the american states to study the drug issue and the president made it clear there would not be another summit or unlikely another summit unless there was cuban participation in the summit. those issues certain were prominent. i think the election results had interesting implications for all three of these. perhaps the most important is the last one, immigration, which was not on the summit agenda. i think it has raised some expectations that this may be a real opportunit
of the inter-american dialogue, and we talked about opportunities in the areas of trade and energy and other global affairs that really should be taken advantage of by the united states moving forward. but we have to -- we emphasize as well there are three issues that were on an old agenda that had not been resolved and stood in the way of more productive relationship between the u.s. and latin america. these issues were drugs, cuba, and immigration. the first two issues were important at the summit of the americas. the report was released right before the summit of the americas. the first two issues were raised at the summit. the presidents gave a mandate to the organization of american states to study the drug issue. and also the president made it clear there would not be another summit or unlikely another summit unless there was cuban participation in the summit. those issues certain were prominent. i think the election results had interesting implications for all three of these. perhaps the most important is the last one, immigration, which was not on the summit agenda. i think it has ra
welcome your ideas, energy, and enthusiasm. we wish you every success in your time here. i want to congratulate the president and the vice president on their hard fought victory last week. i like to say a brief word the thanks to our own nominees, governor romney and congressman ryan. they may not have won the race, but htey earned our respect and admiration. they fought valiantly for the cause of limited government, free enterprise, opportunity for all, and a stronger social safety net that is there when people need it most. they fought for the kind of constitutional conservatism americans believe in so very strongly. their lost says nothing to diminish the importance of these enduring principles or our commitment to keep fighting for them. we thank them. we thank their families for making the sacrifices in the presidential campaign demands. i want to assure everyone the cause goes on. on ot the task at hand -- in politics, there is always a temptation among those who win office to think they have a mandate to do what they will. it is the important to remember in this case the
said about a clean energy job for the future. as you know that has been -- >> we are going break away from this press conference now as the u.s. house is returning for business. a quick reminder you can watch in its entirety on line at c span.org. the house is about to gavel back in. five bills to be considered. include one dealing with the natural gas pipeline for new york and new jersey. there are no votes scheduled for today. now live to the house floor, live on c-span. the speaker: the house will be in order. the prayer will be offered today by our guest chaplain, rev rands donna kiefer, arizona legislative chaplainsy, peoria, arizona. the chaplain: let us pray. dear holy and righteous father, as this honored bodies of congress convenes today, we come first to humbly submit ourselves before you. acknowledging you as lord and creator. the one who directs the paths of those who call upon your precious name. savior god, we also want to thank you for your infinite grace, your divine mercy, and for the deep love that you extend to each of us. father, i ask that you faithfully have heal

, and clean energy, putting people back to work rebuilding roads, bridges and schools and reducing our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. on this last item, we face a very clear deadline. that requires us to make some big decisions on jobs, taxes, and deficits by the end of the year. both parties voted to set this deadline. and i believe that both parties can work together to make these decisions in a balanced and responsible way. to meet with labor and civic leaders for their input. today i meet with c.e.o.'s of some of america's largest companies. and i'll meet with leaders of both party of congress before the week is out because there's only one way to solve the channels and that is to do it together. as i've said before, i'm open to compromise and i'm hope to new ideas. and i've been encouraged over the last week to hear republican after republican agree on the need for more revenue from the wealthiest americans as part of our arithmetic if we're serious about reducing the deficit. because when it comes to taxes, there are two pathways available. option one, if congress fails to ac
on foreign oil. and on energy and all of those things will help. but the key issue here is how do we make our labor internationally competitive? to do that you have to come up with new ideas, new tax cuts, incentives for industry and things like that. that will take some work from congress. and, you know, i feel like that is what they need to do. and it is the same old project, the same old system, it does not fit for today. is that simple. host: nancy cook. caller: that is a fascinating point. we have had these bush era tax cuts are almost over a decade now. the tricky thing about the tax code is at once you introduce changes to it, it is really hard to change them back and temporary tax cuts often become more permanent ones, and the caller raises a great point about thinking about, what should the tax code will look like rather than all of these temporary things adding up -- adding both parties are concerned. -- i think both parties are concerned. both parties say there would like to bring down the corporate tax rate to 28%. and the republicans want to do something or it would create a diff
will come together and the issues of fiscal policy, job creation and education and immigration and energy, that is no longer the looming issue of we have a re-election. that is done. barack obama has run his last campaign. you have a divided government. the one mandate the american people are sending is a mandate to work together which is focused on us. do not focus on what divides you as politicians, focus on us. i don't offer misplaced optimism often. when you are in washington you can get pessimistic really quick. but i think there is a pathway on immigration reform, a long-term debt reduction deal. continued education reform. that is really the test to the president and lead 76ers in the senate and the house. can they come together post election. for a period of time put your needs and the needs of the country first. i have a great deal of confidence that we will do that. [applause] >> thank you for having me back. it is great to be back at the university of delaware and thank you for coming. when we look at this election in 2012 republicans should not be diluted about this. this is
kind words about me. taxes is growing by leaps and bounds. this is made our country much more energy independent and has brought the price of natural gas down. i hope we can agree we don't want to reverse that and continue to go forward with these wonderful changes that have taken place in energy. we have a chance to see a renaissance in manufacturing. a lot of these jobs going overseas may come home. i have been asked and i would make three quick points. i think this election was about a lot of things. i think it is more complicated than that. i would start with the candidates. mitt romney is a good man. he wasn't as natural a communicator as the president . he had a habit of saying things that didn't help him. the president is a natural and gifted communicator. the democrats had a much better get out the vote operation. republicans need to focus on that. democrats were better in the swing states in getting at the base. the third thing is the following. 55% of moderates voted for barack obama for president. why did the republicans lose the moderates? the farther right positions gove
member on the energy and commerce committee, the gentleman from california, mr. waxman. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from california is recognized for five minutes. mr. waxman: thank you very much for yielding to me. mr. speaker, i rise in opposition to the bill. a warmer planet has less ice, higher sea levels, more water in the atmosphere, more powerful storms, more frequent floods, dreier droughts and worse wildfires. two weeks ago hurricane sandy brought a powerful and tragic reminder that the combination of sea level rise and more powerful storms can be deadly, devastating and extremely costly. hurricane sandy was the only -- only the latest and most dramatic in a series of extreme weather events. over the past two years we've had recordbreaking temperatures , the worst drought in 50 years , major floods, numerous tornadoes and thunderstorms and vast wildfires. this is what global warming looks like. and if we continue to ignore it it will soon look far worse. we should be doing all we can to reduce carbon pollution and slow global warming. but this bill instead tries to s
have come together to outline mathematics' integral role in solving real world issues including energy freedom, medical challenges and weather events. as someone who went went on to work in renewable energy for two decades, i know that mathematics can be an essential feature to find solutions to many challenges facing humanity. mr. mcnerney: it will spotlight the importance of mathematics. the national focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics education will ensure the united states remains global competitive force in the marketplace. people across our nation are working together to create a better world, and it's important their efforts be recognized and supported. i encourage my colleagues to join me in recognizing the benefits and goals of the mathematics of planet earth project. thank you, madam speaker. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from pennsylvania rise? >> i ask permission to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, madam speaker. i rise to ur

are very conservative republicans. and we need to focus a lot of our energy in ensuring we win back these governors houses across the country because that's where so much damage is being done on equal pay, on women's health care, on abortion rights. this is where so much is happening and that's what we've got to go forward in the next two years. >> but you raised the governors thing we we somehow managed to avoid. thanks to the election of maggie hasan, we will have one democratic governor next year. one. do we have an executive leadership problem in the democratic party? >> no, we just had a really, really bad 2010. i would like to say, we had some great women running, and great democrats, men and women running in 2010, and we lost them. we just lost those races. but i look at 2014 and i see a increbled pool of women who are seriously considering running for governor in a whole variety of states around the country and we've got to get support around them, though. i think it's important for our party structure to realize how important these governorships are. we tend to focus on the
the president said about clean energy jobs. that has been a priority for me, and i look forward to working on those issues as we go forward. so it is about, again, a healthy, fare economy, healthy people, healthy planet, help the politics. you cannot separate the policy from the politics. if you want good -- you cannot celebrate the breadbox from the ballot box. if you want the right policy for america's working families, you must have politics that are fair and enable people who share those values to be effective. so in order to reignite the american dream, that is what we are about, to build ladders of opportunity for those who want to work hard, play by the rules, take responsibility, for small business and entrepreneurship and a strong and thriving middle-class -- we have work to do. i have made a decision to submit my name to my colleagues to once again serve as the house democratic leader.
